We'll take care of matters so
you don't have to.


Probate is the legal process you have to go through when someone dies, in order to administer their estate. Often the last thing on your mind when you’ve lost a loved one is dealing with their financial affairs – so our experienced and sensitive team will aim to make the difficult task of probate as pain free as possible.

We can offer you advice on the deceased’s estate and their Will – and on the transfer or sale of property and assets. We can also help you to reduce the amount you have to pay in inheritance tax. Beyond this, we also have experience in mediating any disputes, should a disagreement between relatives or executors arise.
